Elizabeth Heiskell was born and raised in the Mississippi Delta, an agricultural area bordered by the Mississippi River where food and fun go hand in hand. With her passion for food, fun, and adventure, Elizabeth started her culinary journey with courses at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York. Chef Heiskell has prepared food for such notables as the Duchess of York, Vice President Al Gore, and a host of Mississippi governors.
As Lead Culinary Instructor at the Viking Cooking School in nearby Greenwood, world headquarters of the Viking Range Corporation, she has represented Viking on exclusive SilverSea cruises through Spain, Portugal, and Hawaii, as well as television and public appearances, and a multitude of culinary events adding fun and vitality to every class she teaches.
She now maintains an active catering company of her own based in Cleveland, Mississippi, where she lives with her husband, Luke, a cotton farmer, and their three daughters.
In addition to sharing some delicious recipes, Ms. Heiskell signed copies of her latest book.
